This time, we got to witness, albeit briefly, the 7th Odyssey Waves National Surfing Competition held at Calicoan Island in Guiuan, Eastern Samar held 6-8 October 2011. We were able to shoot some on the last day, but reluctantly had to head back to Tacloban City mid-afternoon before the announcement of the final winners.

Surfing participants this year came all the way from La Union, Baler, Pagudpud, Manila, Siargao, Lanuza, and, of course Leyte and Borongan, Eastern Samar.

We attended an island wedding recently at Calicoan in Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

It was quality bonding time for the family. Time to unwind and destress. And definitely an opportune time to shoot anew the island’s teeming natural resources.

The island is still unspoiled and very tranquil.

Most photos were taken at the Surf Camp Resort.

We recently attended an island wedding held in Calicoan, Guiuan, Eastern Samar.

An island wedding? you ask.

Yep. Something we all looked forward to to experience.

Specially since it was going to be held at Surf Camp Resort.

It was the civil wedding of Niña Bañez, the (only) daughter of our good friends, Tente & Leny, to her long time fiancee Ryan Cerdiña.

Congratulations, Niña and Ryan!
